    Is it really “compassion” fatigue, or is it so much more? For pet care professionals, I challenge the subject of “compassion fatigue” and say it’s not the lack of caring, it’s different fatigues. This session comes at the perfect time of the year, a time when the new year is looming and a beautiful time to create the personal and professional development plan to lead a healthier life. In this course, attendees will hear the other aspects of fatigue that will present itself when we care so deeply for animals and those who love them. Discussions of emotional fatigue, ethical fatigue, physical fatigue and others will be presented, and how to create coping mechanisms to deal with individual situations.

      Coleen Ellis

      A chance encounter with a pet parent facing the death of her pet was a defining moment for Coleen in 1998. It was the beginning of her vision of how to best meet the needs of pet parents in their desire to mourn, memorialize and pay tribute to their beloved pets when they die. In 2004, the experience of the death of her dog, Mico, guided her in starting the nation’s first stand-alone pet’s-only funeral home. Soon, publications such as Kates-Boylston’s Pet Loss Insider deemed her the “most well known pet funeral director” and a true “pet loss pioneer.” 

      In 2009, Coleen founded Two Hearts Pet Loss Center, to guide people who wish to provide meaningful pet death care services in their communities, as well to be an educational resource in the pet grief discipline. In 2009, she received the first Death and Grief Studies Certification specializing in Pet Loss Companioning by Dr. Alan Wolfelt as well as releasing her first book, Pet Parents: A Journey Through Unconditional Love and Grief.  She is also Certified in Thanatology and is a Certified Pet Loss Professional.

      By 2014, Coleen was ready to take her vision to a new level.  Joining Nick Padlo as managing partner and Chief Marketing Officer, they formed an acquisition company whose mission is to standardize and raise the service levels of the pet loss industry.  The Pet Loss Center strives to be the nation’s premier pet loss service, elevating the experiential component of pet loss and grief care across the country.
